Nuisance Wildlife in Connecticut
Connecticut is one of the most heavily forested states. 60% of Connecticut is forested. The northewestern corner of the state is the most forested. Most of the woodlands are scattered, smaller tracks which make ideal habitats for smaller animals like woodchucks, opossums, raccoons, squirrels, and white-tailed deer.
In addition to the oak-hickory forests, there are an estimated 450,000-acres of wetlands, 6,000 miles of streams and rivers, and over 2,000 lakes and reservoirs. These contribute to ideal habitats for wild animals.
Connecticut is one of the most densely populated states. The proximity of a humans to an animal's natural habitat leads to a high rate of human-wildlife conflicts.
The seasons affect wildlife activity. Different species are more likely to take up residence on your property at different times of year.
Connecticut Regulations for Nuisance Wildlife
Before you attempt any DIY wildlife control, become familiar with all Connecitcut regulations. Sometimes the best option for nuisance wildlife is to do nothing. Habitat modifications and not feeding wildlife are effective prevenative techniques. Frightening technqiues and deterents can be effective in the short term for some species. The most effecitve means of nuisance wildlife control is exclusion.
As National Widlife Control Operators (NWCO
), we are well versed in Connecticut wildlife control regulations.
As required by Connecitcut law, section 26-47 (b) (3), NWCOs must provide clients written notification of options, nonlethal and lethal, for resolving common wildlife issues. Commerical use of repellents requires a state pesticides license. Live traps must be checked once per day. Rabies vector animals (raccoons, skunks, foxes) can only be release on site. Some species requires special permit (foxes, coyotes, beaver, fisher, muskrat, mink, otter).
